Lovely park, close to Lijiang Old Town, with hiking opportunities
Jan 2020
Whilst the entry fee is a little expensive (60RMB), this is a lovely park with an opportunity to do some hiking up the mountain inside. It is walking distance from the north end of the Lijiang Old Town. We went on a weekday in January and it didn't feel too busy, though the car park was full. 1 hour is enough if you just want to see the park, but if you want to hike up the mountain then allow 3 hours.

Sunday morning .... most enjoyable .... people to people experience
Oct 2019
We toured the park with our local Lijiang guide who introduced us to his friends, random people from other places in China, picture taking galore and dancing in the main part of the park with minorities of all sorts in their native dress. The sites were lovely, the photos were abundant. We had a super day at Black Dragon Park.

Lovely Park
Oct 2019 • Couples
Spent a lovely afternoon here and it isn’t far to walk from the old town. The views on a clear day are beautiful over the lake to the mountains beyond (don’t forget your camera). It is fairly large and they had a traditional band playing the day we visited.

Overpriced
Jan 2020 • Solo
Aside from the lake, the rest of the park feels like a poorly preserved forest. The ticket was the same price as that of entry to the tiger leaping gorge. Not worth it.

What a lovely place to walk around, very tranquil in places. Highly recommend a visit here! The view of the mountain in the background was really special.

Beautiful ponds

This was very nice; nice park with cool water features and lovely paths—even in January. It must be amazing in summer.

Spectacular view, need pay entrance fee rmb50 which is valid for 30days. Can have a small hike at elephat hill which is easy to locate. We waited for sunset to take a great photo of the mountain and pool.

Absolutely stunning!
Nov 2019
Spent the morning and strolled right around the lake. It is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen and we have travelled a lot. If the mountain is in morning mist, enjoy the rest of the walk in the peace of the morning, go have lunch in Lijiang and pop back for a second stroll later in the day, you won’t regret it. It was a main highlight of our month in China. Take your camera!

Beautiful scenery
Sep 2019 • Couples
The scenery of Black dragon park is the iconic image of Lijiang. If you search Lijiang on Google then you probably see the photo of a temple with Jade snow mountain at the back.

The park is not very big but landscape is beautiful. The bridges, garden, rivers make up a great background for you Instagram photos. Even the toilet is decorated elaborately which look like a small palace from afar.
